I have Lenovo G50 Laptop. Last day i install Fedora Workstation (Version 21) in my Laptop. Every thing works fine.

( means Audio, Graphics and Wired Network card.) But there is no Wireless adpater shown in the Network manager.

I googled serveral time for a solution. And i also search drivers in Lenovo support website. But they provide drivers

Windows platform only. Is there any solution for this problem. I am a newbie in Fedora Linux.

Please Help.

Have you tried installing kmod-wl?

As root

yum install kmod-wl

If it is not still working, have a look at https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/50675/wireless-not-working-on-fedora-20/
